Los Angeles Lakers Betting
The Los Angeles Lakers have turned the tide after having a turbulent preseason and first two games of the season. They managed to pick up a tight win against the Memphis Grizzlies with Carmelo Anthony leading the charge. All is well as Dwight Howard and Anthony Davis worked well together in the victory after a heated altercation during their match against the Phoenix Suns. LeBron James and Russell Westbrook continue to work on their chemistry and they showed that they can work together with their most recent win. Shooters Malik Monk and Kent Bazemore are looking better in their rotation so far after their first three games.

San Antonio Spurs Betting
The San Antonio Spurs are a team that looks to have an identity crisis. Keldon Johnson has been a solid starter for the Spurs but they need more to even dent the competition above them. Doug McDermott is coming to his own and is expected to be the team’s main shooter while Jakob Poeltl has evolved to an all-around center. Dejounte Murray and Derrick White have been fantastic so far but the team still needs more. This is probably one of the weakest teams that Greg Popovich has handled in his illustrious NBA coaching career. Nonetheless, they look to rebuild through the upcoming drafts.
